    Mists of Pandaria is a really good expansion for World of Warcraft that offers plenty to all players, regardless of the play style they prefer. Let's hope that the promise of frequent updates will be kept and no one will get bored with existing content. Everyone should be able to answer this question: What is Mists of Pandaria? For me it's a WoW adventure I have been waiting for since 2010. Remember though, that grading Mists of Pandaria right now is simply an attempt to foresee where Blizzard's game is headed.

    FIFA 15 is pretty much one of the best football games out there. The Ignite engine works flawlessly and delivers a new quality, and playing with the football became more demanding, fluent and much less predictable. I have played an early version of the game a while ago, and it didn't seem like FIFA 15 was going to be good. But it is. Very much so. "Just one more game" syndrome is present and everyone should fall under its charm.

    EA Sports gives you a game that is an extremely playable snow monster. You swoop down the slopes like an avalanche and all these air tricks make you want to book a ticket to a ski resort. Plus all the special challenges that diversify the gameplay are spot on.

    A strange game. On one hand we have mediocre graphics, choppy animations, a general lack of polish, and really bad first few missions. On the other hand, the campaign keeps getting better and in the end looks like a really good stealth game, there's lots of additional missions (in co-op as well) and a great multiplayer mode, that has the power to convince gamers usually avoiding online play. The new Splinter Cell, just like the new young Sam Fisher, doesn't look trustworthy, but it's worth giving a shot. The game isn't as good as Chaos Theory, but underneath all these minor issues hides a really good game.

    Metro: Last Light isn't just another AAA shooter aimed at a typical gamer. The game's strength lies in its mature, brutal content - and I don't mean just the story (that will get its own book soon). Metro has a ton of amazing little details that make this virtual world seem very real. And what's more - the game is absolutely beautiful. Taking all this into consideration, there can be only one verdict: must buy.

    Botanicula is yet another game for people looking for some unusual aesthetic emotions. Upon launching Animata Design's game you can be sure you're embarking on a short, but exceptional journey that makes ordinary adventure games seem sad and bleak.

    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has a hauntingly beautiful, unnerving world, and when you leave it, it's like waking up from a very complex dream. The game is extremely pretty and demands some interpretation and asking of the right questions. The Astronauts' first game has many little details, and none of them are accidental. Everything is well thought out and the gameplay walks hand in hand with the story. There should be more games like this.

    WildStar was announced as a hardocore MMORPG that would offer a new quality to the fans of the genre. Most of these promises have been kept. Except for some technical errors, the game looks solid and offers a great, dynamic combat system which effectively doubles the fun. Given that this is only the beginning of the development of this new MMO, we are dealing with a highly promising production.

    The way you look at Injustice: Gods Among Us depends on the way you felt about the last Mortal Kombat. If you had fun, you'll like the new game. If you wanted something more serious and demanding, you'll be disappointed. But all in all NetherRealm is in shape and still is a worthy competitor in the beat'em up genre. Injustice delivers spectacular moments that should attract a new audience, and this type of games will definitely benefit from that.

    Battlefield 4 is a definitive champion of military shooters. The multiplayer mode is superb and shows its magic, when fighters and chopper fly over a big map, when boats jump on the waves and the infantry bravely battles armored enemy units. All of this is beautiful, but there's a lot of issues - from funny minor ones, to some really big and annoying ones. And remember: the single-player campaign is terrible.

    The console version of Torchlight seems to be a very well made game – as long as you don't expect a deep, nonlinear story and tactical challenges during fights. You get what is best on Xbox: comfortable controls, cool graphics and the opportunity to gain achievements and awards for your avatar. Unfortunately, one element that grants a long life to similar games is missing – lack of multiplayer is Torchlight's biggest flaw.

    It's surprising but I haven't felt such a fresh breeze in a long time. Renedage Ops is a classic game in a new, shiny package. A great, outstanding and captivating product, a true gem among games sold through digital distribution. It doesn't do anything new but it's homework is done perfectly. It is a gamer's bible written in binary code. Pure awesomeness!

    To put it briefly: The New Order deserves a sequel. And to make sure this dream comes true, I can do only one thing: convince you to buy the new Wolfensten game. Perhaps great trailers boosted expectations too high, perhaps fanatical Return to Castle Wolfenstein players won't be as amazed, as I am, but I'm sure of this: all FPS fans will have a great time and after finishing the game they'll want more.

    On one hand Alien: Isolation has great levels and some excellent sequences, but on the other it's too predictable, has technical issues and a disappointing Alien. In the beginning you'll be amazed, then you'll get bored, just to be excited at the very end. Isolation is much better than Colonial Marines but not as good as other survival horrors out there. It could (and should!) have been great.

    Shift 2: Unleashed is the most exciting racing game available. What happens on the track, with a little help from several camera settings, is almost a magical performance in which we take part not as a spectator but as an active participant.

    The PC version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is a letdown. PCs are being treated unfairly this year and gets only some of the new stuff (and not everything works the way it should!). The game will run smoothly even on older laptops but I don't think this was the goal - besides the game itself is clearly worse than its competitors and the next-gen version. Of course, you can see the changes and have fun, but that's not enough.

    LEGO Batman 2 is a true milestone for the series. A brick-made Batman rose up to the challenge and overtook it's predecessor by light years. The game's biggest assets are: an introduction of an open world, an interesting story and surprising plot twists. The new LEGO Batman is almost addictive – exploring the game's world can take long hours, and visiting previously completed levels isn't a strange thing.

    Developing and upgrading your character and fighting with many superbly-designed opponents are the biggest advantages of Kingdoms of Amalur. You need to stop treating the story as a very important thing and focus on collecting powerful items and leveling up - only then will the game pick up speed and grant you many hours of great fun.

    Dear console-owner - if you haven't experienced Crysis on a PC, don't hesitate to do it on your console. The loss on a visual side is minor and you still get an excellent gameplay experience with a lot of freedom and decision making. It's still one of the best shooters around.

    You should definitely pay attention to Gran Turismo 6, even though there's a new PlayStation on the market. GT6 may not have some key features present in the previous installment, but right now it's the most versatile, rich and interesting console racing game. There are some minor issues, but all in all, it will keep you entertained for dozens of hours (mainly due to tons of content and a great new driving model). It's a worthy farewell to the PS3.

    A fast, brutal and demanding beat'em up that is Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, proves that taking a few ideas from old games, expanding them and making them look and sound modern can give an excellent result. Basic gameplay mode is accompanied by two more, that provide many hours of fun - either alone or with company (using one console or a network).

    Blood Dragon is one of the most original expansions I have ever come across. The developers have succeeded in smuggling absurd atmosphere into Far Cry 3 and create a really funny parody. Unfortunately all the main assets of Far Cry 3 have been lost in the process and the game quickly becomes monotonous. Making fun of trending themes is great up to a point, when Blood Dragon becomes boring. What we have is a really funny missed chance.

    Wasteland is a mediocre game and an excellent adventure rolled into one product - thanks to a great atmosphere I found determination to overlook bugs, ugly graphics and a very weak interface. People who fell in love with Fallout and Wasteland should be satisfied. It's a pity that the developers haven't had the time/will to improve and rethink some things. Wasteland 2 could have been an atom bomb. Instead it's just a really loud grenade.

    Civilization: Beyond Earth doesn't offer a staggering amount of changes but that doesn't affect the gameplay in a negative way. Beyond Earth is a classy stand alone game. Basic rules from Civ V guarantee great fun and on top of that you get a new world and some aliens which make you think of new strategies. There's no revolution but a well executed evolution, and that's more than enough.

    If you expected some sort of a revolution with the new Trackmania, the first few minutes will prove you wrong. Canyon is a continuation of Nadeo's consistent way but with a new graphics engine and an addition of the ManiaPlanet system. Speed freaks will spend hundreds of hours with this game, perfecting their skills and advancing in the world rankings. It's a very good, sometimes perfect, arcade game, accesible for casual and hardcore gamers alike.

    You could say, that the PC version of 2011 Mortal Kombat wins the battle, but it's not a flawless victory. Nevertheless, you should check it out - your keyboard will suffer from a brutal fatality, but the amount of fun is satisfying. It's a great beat'em up for solo players - the game has lots of modes and challenges, but it's also great for parties - up to 4 players can play on one machine. The developers need to control some online issues and minor bugs, and the experience will truly be "komplete".

    Wargame: European Escalation seems to be a game wanting to merge RTS dynamics with the realism of games like Combat Mission. But the developers haven't tried to get to the biggest audience no matter what. They simply created something unique.

    Despite a few setbacks, the new Civ V add-on has to be considered a very good one. Introduced novelties improve gameplay by adding some depth and color. Constant spy fighting and religious competition are the elements that were missing and now the game is complete.

    Watch_Dogs has a very obvious storyline and some minor issues, but as a game it offered me lots of satisfaction and finishing it was a real pleasure (there was no boredom, and I can't say that about all Ubisoft's sandbox games). The most important thing is the idea - the developers had a good one and were able to deliver a very good game on top of it. If there were no GTA V and surprisingly good Sleeping Dogs, the final grade would be higher.

    I wish that the developers' creation becomes popular enough so that they can create a more complex sequel without looking at a budget. It could have some sort of a multiplayer mode - the game is lacking an opportunity to have a two player battle: one makes the turrets, the other tries to get through. But aside from that Anomaly is a very well made single player experience.
